Thumb Down Sansa Clip Water Damage


I'm not sure if this has been posted before, but if it has, just let me know.

Anyways, I left my Sansa Clip 2GB MP3 player in my pants pocket and it accidentally got thrown into the washer for about 40 minutes... I threw it in the dryer, where it stayed for about 30 seconds, until I realized what had happened. I took it out, and what do you know, condensation on the screen, water leaking out of the joints, and it won't power on.

When I realized it had happened, I tried turning it off and on, but when it wouldn't work, I put it in front of a furnace vent to warm it up, which I know wasn't a good idea. So, I plugged it into the computer to see if the computer would recognize it, and it did, so I thought I would warm it up again. I did so, and plugged it into the computer again. Now the computer just recognizes it as new hardware and it won't work.

So my question; any tips on getting it to work? And also, if there is a way, how do you open the MP3 player to dry it out? There doesn't seem to be a way... I know, I kinda screwed it up, but any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

EDIT: Update; Now, the computer recognizes it again! That's a good thing, I'm sure. But what happens is it says "Writing", then it says "Connected" and then it screen says "Scandisk", then it repeats... I don't remember this happening before. Also, the battery indicator in the top-right corner shows that its charging, but the minute I unplug it, it powers off. And there are also little specs on blue and orange on the screen.... Any help now?
